think that clip that you played of ann romney saying i love women is so illustrative because the romney campaign wants to just assert, we're for women without having any sort of specifics to back it up, any sort of policies that would show that they would help women, that they would be sensitive to these issues. so you can't just come out and say, i love women. you have to back it up and show what the you're going to do for the american people that makes sense. i personally don't think that there's anything he could do at this point to truly close that gap. >> and he better not point and say stop it, because that doesn't work either. >> joy reid and crist yal ball, as always, brilliant women. wonderful. tomorrow we are taking the show on the road with the ktz broadcasting live from the university of denver, site of the first of three presidential debates. our special coverage begins at 4:00 followed by chris matthews, of course, and "hardball" at 5:00. >>> next, why are billionaires so angry with the president? stay with us. >> we have the mandates and the moral authority to make things

williams and julian epstein. julian, if i might begin with you. we saw ann romney last night on with jay leno. she wondered if she had come off a little strong last week when she chastised all of us when we didn't realize how lucky we are for having her husband run for president. what did you think of the more humble mrs. romney? >> i don't critique -- >> stop it. stop it. this is hard. get in the ring. get in the wring. >> she does have -- >> stop it. >> -- about watching your spouse -- watching your spouse take a shellacking is a difficult job for any spouse. and this just isn't a normal shellacking we're talking about. we're talking about a loss in november that could put the republicans into a permanent minority status. and i think you'll start hearing two words. one, mandate. two, landslide. because that's the way things are looking. you talk to professionals and they will tell you off camera it is getting increasingly unlikely to impossible that romney has a path in the electoral college here. >> goldie, do you agree with julien julien? >> i agree with julien the

a lot more interviews. we're seeing a lot more of ann romney. here she was appearing on "the tonight show" with jay leno and "access hollywood" where she called her husband -- we don't have that but called him the life of the party. what about those kinds of things, when you have other people, steve, helping to try to introduce your candidate at this stage of the game? >> well, i'd like to agree with governor angler. i think you two candidates in the ad showed very different views of how to grow the economy. you know, i think ann romney is a terrific person. i think michelle obama is a terrific person. i think, you know, joe biden and paul ryan have very different views of the world, but at the end of the day i think people are going to go out and vote in this election based on the two principles, based on what they think about mitt romney and what they think about barack obama and what they think about their vision for the economy. i don't think, you know, all the rest of it sort of helps create a picture but i don't think people are going to vote in this election based on other peo

surrogate have been here shadowing the president while he does debate prep. yesterday it was ann romney. i saw matt romney was appearing with marco rubio, one of the rising stars from florida. he's here to help turn out the hispanic vote in navy nevada. i sat down with him for an exclusive one on one. he said republicans should calm down about the polls. he believes that mitt romney's going to have a strong debate and he said the message should be very simple. take a listen. >> my pitch to voters is simple. we can't afford four more years of barak obama. we can barely afford four more months. if we have four more years of barak obama, we can't wait four years for people to find jobs or our houses to be worth what we paid for them. we can't wait four years for our kids to find job when is they graduate college. we can't wait for four more years. we can't afford it. >> marco rubio told me he thinks mitt romney, having a chance tomorrow night for the first time ever to be on the same stage with the president of the united states in his words, will crystallize the choice for voters. i think th

-infamous welfare ad from the republican ann romney campaign last month. >> president obama quietly ended the work requirement, gutting welfare reform. >> that is not true. that did not happen. president obama did not strip the work requirement out of welfare quietly or otherwise. quite the opposite, in fact. which, again, has been pointed out ad nauseam by political reporters. but the romney campaign's response about getting caught lying about president obama's welfare policies was not to correct or remove the ad, corre like mitt romney said has always been done, that ad is still there on their campaign web page. in fact the campaign responded by telling we're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. when he was asked about the untrue welfare ad. >> any time there's anything that's been amiss we correct it or remove it. the president on the other and. >> even the welfare ad? >> absolutely. it has been shown time and again that the president's effort to take work requirement out of welfare is a calculated move. >> the president has made no effort to take work requirements out of

, mr. romney has had some incredible assets at his disposable, fox news, ann coulter, "the wall street journal," karl rove, bill crystal, david koch but he's blaming everyone else. is it because he's not a very good candidate or is it because his policies stink? which of the two? >> well, i'm not going to apologize publicly like krystal. she's braver than me. but it's going back to the numbers that are exposing a new reality for the part which is today, which is a record number, 40% of all americans identify as independent. that's a record number. 31% democrat, and 27% republican. and that's a shrinking number when you look at the last five years. unless you adjust and react to a shrinking number and change the rhetoric and really, you know, reach out to the fastest growing segments of minorities and women in this country that will take the president and the new president to the white house, then it's going to continue to shrink. so i think i'm going to blame the strategists that are ignoring the numbers. >> really, the strategists. krystal, i want you to take a look at romney's reacti
